About Sledge Hammer!
Sledge Hammer! was a cult classic television show that aired from 1986 to 1988. The show followed the adventures of the titular character, a trigger-happy detective who often found himself in absurd situations. Sledge Hammer! was a parody of the cop shows of the time, and it was known for its over-the-top violence and humor.
The show was created by Alan Spencer, who drew inspiration from classic cop shows like Dirty Harry and The Streets of San Francisco. Sledge Hammer! was a critical success, with many praising its satirical take on the genre. However, the show struggled with low ratings and was eventually canceled after two seasons.
Despite its short run, Sledge Hammer! has remained a cult favorite among fans of the genre. The show's irreverent humor and over-the-top violence have influenced many comedies that followed, including The Naked Gun and Hot Fuzz.
Sledge Hammer! was also notable for its lead actor, David Rasche, who brought a manic energy to the role of Sledge. Rasche's performance was praised by critics, who noted his ability to balance the character's comedic and dramatic moments.
Overall, Sledge Hammer! was a groundbreaking show that pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable on television. Its legacy lives on in the many comedies that have followed in its wake.
